Tolerate her elbow still not tennis
, but Justine Henin is fortunate. Nine months after an injury put an end to her tennis career, she starts to live again. "It is a second birth."
"I had no social life. I was completely locked up. Now I place. I'm learning to enjoy food, conversation, a walk. It sounds weird, but I find everything through the eyes of a child. For the first time. I see things I never saw. I feel, I smell things I never felt or smelled. I also said goodbye to my mother. "
"It is a second birth. No rebirth. But a second birth. In a new world, the experiences of the previous. My eyes were opened when I visited this year's Wimbledon. I sat on the terrace and saw Azarenka play against Petrova. And suddenly I felt like a spectator. It was not my world. That field, which spectators, I always thought it was a world. My world. There and then I realized that the spectators after the match went back to their world. While I only knew that world. " (I hope she is an Azarenka fan
More enjoyment, it was also the slogan of your second career.
"I know, but I was not then ready. It also depends on your character. I could just play tennis for one hundred percent. The life I led was so intense that I walked by myself. I had barely beaten the last ball and I was already working on the next tournament. If I regret anything, it is. I no longer enjoyed the great moments in my career. But otherwise I have no regrets. The sport has given me a lot. Not so much memories, but rather values. Well now that I can use as a manager. "
You just now took leave of your deceased mother, you say?
"I was very close with my mom, but I came to realize that I actually knew very little about her.
I went to the bottom. Not easy, I needed help, but I accepted it. Grieving is letting go. It was impossible for that process to go through during my active career. I also kropte everything. I imagine now open. It had, I never wanted a family. I want that pent-up feelings, those fears do not transfer them to my children. I feel relieved now, more tolerant. "
"The work is not finished. I'm still on the bridge between two lives. And then? I leave everything open. I do not want projects and more time pressure. What comes, comes. Justine for Kids (its organization for children with cancer, ed) is a certainty. My younger sister cares why. There is also the academy here. But otherwise? I'm quite cerebral, but I never had the time. You do now. I look at Tintin, I read books and I look every day the news. Before that, never. But my main course project are children. "
Henin is the family-rich offspring?
"No idea. More than one, less than five. I want children, but I do not want just a mommy. I'm just the woman to be. "
